What ultimately drew Frida to the Master’s programme Social Ecological Resilience for Sustainable Development was the opportunity to dig deeper into the interaction between ecological and social systems, as well as the opportunity to learn about, apply and practice systems theory for transformation and change.
Frida has a professional background in environmental planning in mainly urban and semi-urban environments. She has worked with environmental and social impact assessments in physical planning processes in Sweden and Norway. Frida is also specialized in fieldwork and risk assessments dealing with pollution remediation in soil, groundwater and lakes.
Frida also has experience working in the development cooperation sector (Sida – Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency) promoting integration with actors from the field of human rights and environment on a regional scale in Southeast Asia. Her educational background is within the field of human geography and environmental science. She wrote her Bachelor’s thesis on land-use management and biofuel investments in Ethiopia.
Frida has work experience from the several European countries, Southeast Asia and East Africa.
Right now, Frida has a particular interest in participatory processes in a physical planning context. She would like to dig deeper into understanding what constitutes ‘local’ and ‘communities’ in highly connected urban areas, and how we make sure efforts at including a ‘local’ perspective in the planning process are integrated at the core. Furthermore, she would like to explore how this interacts with sustainability goals and transformation for change.
